Determining the value of your treasured jewelry and timepieces necessitates a discerning eye and skilled expertise. Shreve & Co., with a remarkable legacy spanning 171 years, stands as a steadfast protector of our clients' investments, ensuring their preservation and appreciation through generations.

Understanding Jewelry Appraisal

A jewelry appraisal involves a professional assessment of a jewelry piece's authenticity, quality, and value. Conducted by a certified gemologist or appraiser with the required expertise and knowledge, this evaluation accurately computes the jewelry's worth.

Key aspects, such as metal composition, gemstones, craftsmanship, and prevailing market conditions, are diligently weighed by the appraiser to provide a precise estimation of the jewelry's value.
This assessment serves as a vital tool in ascertaining the value of a piece of jewelry, often essential for insurance purposes, estate planning, and buying or selling jewelry. Opting for a reputable and certified appraiser, such as Shreve & Co., is crucial to ensure a reliable appraisal.

Recognizing that the value of jewelry can fluctuate due to changing market conditions is imperative. Therefore, we strongly recommend updating your insurance documents every 2 to 3 years to accurately reflect your jewelry's current value. Keeping these estimates up-to-date ensures appropriate coverage in the unfortunate event of loss, theft, or damage to your invaluable jewelry.
